As completely self taught knitter and crocheter, I found that I do some things in a different way than standard techniques, but most comfy and easier for me. I still receive pretty often emails with how-to-questions and planned set up a tips category since so long… and it’s finally here! You may already be familiar with some of these tricks and sure I may not be the first to employ or invest these techniques, but I will be glad if you find something new and useful here. And hear “Why didn’t I think of that?!” – even from experienced knitters and crocheters, is always a highest award for me. So, let’s go…
TIP #1. HOW TO GET AN EASY AND PRETTY PICOT. If you find that making picots are annoying and slowing down the crocheting process, try to make picot in this improvised way I usually do:
In this way, the picots are more pretty and stable, plus it’s easier and faster to make. Please take a moment to try it and share your thought.
What would you like next? If you have how-to-questions about techniques I use for my patterns, please feel free to ask them here and I’ll do my best to create the visual tutorial or give helpful tips.
Hi Alla , I try already both option of picot and really think the second option is the best, the picot looks great and its easier to make it!
WhooHooo, Thank you so much Judy! You just made day and probably start love projects with picots as much as I do :о)
I will have to try that next time I make something with picots…thanks girl! :D
I will definitely try that next time, thanks Alla! My issue with crocheting is always having to switch everything around, since I am a lefty, LOL! But my mom taught me the basics and she was a “righty”.
Will try the improvised picots. Mine are just not that pretty!!! Lol
Thank you for including your tips. I was hoping you would ;)
